About SU Sport


Sport is an important part of student life. A great way to keep active and healthy, develop personal skills whilst making lifelong friends.

Sport is an important part of student life at the University of Bath, with many students becoming involved with some aspect of student sport during their time at the University. It is a great means by which to keep active and healthy, develop personal skills through the management of a team or club, and also as a way to make friends that could last a life time.

SU Sport

SU Sport is the branch of the Students' Union that co-ordinates all aspects of student sport. With a team of staff, elected Sports Officer and the Sports Executive Committee all working to make student sport the best it can possibly be.

There are a range of opportunities to get involved in student sport, you could join any of our 50 sports clubs to play competitively or recreationally. We also offer a social sport programme FREE to all students - check out Bath Active for more information on this. 

SU Sport can be identified by the Sports Crest which is taken from the main University of Bath Coat of Arms. When students compete, they do so playing under this crest as representatives of both the Students’ Union and University.

Sport Officer

Your Sport Officer has to campaign to be elected into position each year in the SU Officer elections to oversee the running of SU Sport

Working closely with the area staff, it is their job to drive the development of the area, support our sports clubs and represent the student body on all things sport to the University and the Department of Sport Development and Recreation.

You can find out more about this year's Officer, what they have been working on, as well as their main objectives for the year on the central Union pages, but if you have any questions, or think we should be offering something that we don't already, then just email subathsport@bath.ac.uk

TOM SAWKO – SU SPORT OFFICER

About Me: I've been at the uni since 2015, and immediately found the Volleyball club. I've held loads of leadership positions within the club, from captaining and coaching, to chairing! 

I studied for an integrated masters in Physics with Astrophysics. To me, sport was more than just a respite from a demanding course, it's given me a sense of community, and I've loved being able to facilitate that as part of my roles within the SU. 

I now play and coach Indoor and Beach volleyball alongside my role as SU Sport officer and am excited to get competing on the UK beach tour in summer 2021! 

I also love cooking, playing guitar and going for walks.

Come and talk to me about:

  • Local and national representation of students in physical activity
  • Creating change within sporting and physical activity communities
  • Projects and campaigns
  • Becoming a student leader
  • Accessibility and inclusion within physical activity
